This is an extraordinary activity at an extraordinary place with extraordinary people! If you have the chance to do it - do it! Athens is the perfect place for learning how to create a mosaic and this artist's workshop is the perfect place in Athens. Efthimios introduces you not only in theoretical knowledge, but also in the application of the direct way of making mosaics. You choose a simple motive, the rest (colours, arrangement, deviation) is up to you. Efthimios makes you let your mind wander and at the same time helps you reflect on your and his ideas. Although being a real professional, he finds the right way between his expert's perfection and your own (basic) knowledge. However, I am very satisfied with what emerged and I felt like these 3,5-4 hours spinned away. It was also great to have two/three further mosaic makers/students in the other room, so you felt a bit like being part of a project or something. You were free to go there and see what they are doing. I was served with covid-compliant snacks and felt cared about a lot. Thank you, Ninos, for this great experience!

We loved this experience so much! It was enjoyable and we learned so much about mosaics and installation processes. We are inspired to keep creating more mosaics!!

This was such an amazing experience learning a new skill and immersing in Greek culture. Efthimios was sure to be patient with us as first-timers and tailored the experience to us. A relaxing time with snacks and drinks were a great unexpected addition, as well as a new friend made in the host! 10 stars!

Had a great authentic Greek experience that made our time in Athens even more memorable. Developed a new appreciation for the art of mosaic making and even got a certificate! The host was very accomodating and we had a great conversation. Would do it again when in Athens!

Really interesting workshop, I had an amazing experience making mosaic design myself. Don’t be intimidated by the length of the experience, time flies really fast when you began your work. I really like my final product, making my own souvenir is much better than buying one.

I really enjoyed learning how to do a mosaic! It was such a unique class and he definitely knew what he was talking about. I loved seeing his work around the studio. I ended up being the only person there, which wasn’t my favorite, it just would have been nice to have other people in the studio. He was attentive and nice and provided snacks, which was fun!
